Sorry for the down-time. BeTwittered is back, again. I notified the folks at Twitter as soon as I diagnosed the problem on Friday, January the 30th. Being the second time this happened, it only took me a few minutes to diagnose and then notify Twitter. There were some unfortunate delays …read more
My Apologies. If it is something I can fix, I will. My guess is that BeTwittered has been blacklisted again for making too many requests of the Twitter servers. I've not yet gotten a response as to whether this is the case or not.
Update (2:24pm pacific time) : The …read more
I want to ensure that anyone getting the, somewhat snarky, "Twitter is not responding in a sane manner" message is not too alarmed.
It appears that Twitter, who's servers were reportedly doubled for the U.S. Presidential inauguration, may already be having capacity problems today. The servers are responding slowly …read more
The blacklisting of BeTwittered by Twitter was lifted. First and foremost, thanks to everyone who left encouraging messages. I'm still amazed at how many people voiced their support.

Some new features:
- A button to show/hide the dashboard area (the controls and text area)
- Better handling when …

- Newly configurable refresh rates
- Configurable font sizes
- New pop-up dialogs (thanks Stan, for jGrowl!)
- New timelines: your …
There are now ~~Beta~~ versions of BeTwittered that connect to Identica and the TWiT Army Canteen. ~~They are definitely both BETA~~, and I've started on a new client that will support multiple servers, so only one client will be needed. For now, here are the links to the ~~beta's~~ specific …read more
I made a blog post over on http://robert.arlesnet.com, and Evan of Identi.ca pointed out to me that I did not link to the new beta version of BeTwittered. This beta version connects to Identi.ca rather than Twitter.com. I've checked the google directory this morning …read more
How did I forget to post about this? I'm a bit of a flaky geek sometimes. BeTwittered features now include tabs for viewing replies, your favorites, and direct messages to you. Admittedly, the tabs are rudimentary right now, but they work. Sometimes I chose to release features and do the …read more
